The neighborhood to which the Porta Garibaldi station belongs developed strongly in recent years - from a black hole on the Milan city map to a lively and elegant district. It all began with the regeneration of the station itself, followed by the construction of the Centro Direzionale, whose glass buildings surround Piazza Gae Aulenti. This lively square is dominated by a fountain with shops and office buildings.
Students are able to find an apartment in the neighbourhood of Garibaldi by simply having a look at the nearby surroundings such as Isola or Corso Sempione, which is where the apartments are still affordable.
The horizon is dominated by skyscrapers that are new and recognisable, such as Bosco Verticale, the winner of several international prices. On the opposite side of it is the famous Monumental Cemetery, which is not only a cemetery but also an outdoor electric museum.
The crypts can appear in very different styles, and some of them even accommodate prominence such as Manzoni, Dario Fo, Franca Rame, Giorgio Gaber and Enzo Whittaker.
